Hyperpigmentation occurs due to inflammation. When this happens, our skin signals our melanocytes. These, in turn, produce more melanin, resulting in those pesky dark spots. However, the types of inflammation can differ. This means that the dark patch on your cheek could be a result of anything from acne to a reaction to a skincare product.
How to tackle hyperpigmentation & dark spots with Poko?
